EnVyUs beat OpTic to book Major qualifier spot

EnVyUs have booked their spot at the Main Qualifier for ELEAGUE Major Boston after defeating OpTic Gaming 2-0 in the consolidation final.

The opening map of the series, Inferno, began with a successful B execution from Envy, who took control of the site with kills from Christophe "SIXER" Xia and Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom.

After buying up, OpTic immediately strung five rounds together, putting Envy in danger of getting blown out. What followed was a hectic period of play as the teams kept cancelling each other out, with OpTic getting punished time and time again for their overaggression. The half ended in a close 8-7 scoreline in Envy' favour following a B execution in the final round.

The second half began with a 1v3 clutch from Emil "Magisk" Reif to tie up the score at 8-8. However, OpTic could not follow it up as the Frenchmen hit back immediately, armed with nothing but CZs. That round allowed Envy to gain a crushing control of the economy; any round that went OpTic's way was quickly countered by the CTs, preventing the 'Green Wall' from having a foothold in the game, with Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's men locking down the map at 16-10.

EnVyUs are through to the Major qualifier

Map two, Train, started at a frantic pace. Envy took the pistol round with a B retake, only to lose the following round as Aleksi "allu" Jalli picked up a triple kill with an AK in a force-buy. However, momentum would swing back and forth for a while as neither team managed to string more than a couple of rounds together.

Up 6-4, OpTic seemed ready to run away with the lead, but Happy rescued his side with a 1v2 clutch with a CZ. allu came up huge in the following round with another triple kill, restoring a two-round lead and resetting the Frenchmen. Thanks to a triple kill from Cédric "RpK" Guipouy, Envy quickly got back into the game, with the half ending in a close 8-7 scoreline in OpTic's favour following an ace from allu in the final round.

Now playing on the Terrorist side, Envy restored parity at 8-8 with a fast B execution in the pistol round. After losing both eco rounds, OpTic picked up the first gun round with a triple kill from Magisk on the inner site, but the Frenchmen rallied back immediately, resetting the CTs.

Envy continued racking up rounds, with the scoreline blooming to a 14-9 advantage. OpTic then found a way back into the game following a massive blunder from ScreaM, who tagged down his entire team with a grenade thrown in the T spawn. That round sparked a massive run from OpTic, who tied up the score at 14-14, but a stunning triple kill from RpK in an A execution put Envy on match point - an opportunity the Frenchmen did not waste.

Optic is out but teams like avangar (who?) and qb.fire (who???) are in... Nice system valve
2017-11-05 14:54
Look, optic has no mappool, it's just mix of skilled players, and this minor just proved it. Team was overhyped.
2017-11-05 14:59
They just choked It... Idk what happened between the first map against SS and rest of minor but they just turn bad in that moment.

I don't know why you're acting like this roster is NiP, they've been together for what? 2-3 months? Yet you expect them to be instant major material? Give them time to work man, it's a process not something that happens over night
2017-11-06 12:33
Avangar is a up and coming Kazakhstan team. They're by no means terrible
2017-11-05 15:06
I've never heard of QB Fire tho. Too bad NiP and Optic didn't make it :/
2017-11-05 15:14
I know QBF, I think they placed 3rd at last cis minor, but they're nowhere near Optic

Inferno was lost due to the completely worthless duo of Magisk and Friberg giving up B for free every single round. Train was lost because of Magisk being useless just in general, and Friberg somehow managing to throw away three anti-eco rounds with his idiotic strategies. Slow clap. Pathetic.

I just hope magisk stops sniffing cocaine so he gets consistent (since the first time I saw magisk he looked like a kid Who sniffed so much cocaine he looks older) and friberg improves as IGL and make OpTic a tier 1 team. Otherwise, I see friberg the first to step down, but I believe on him.

What makes you think that a bunch of guys who were either cut or benched, are good enough to be in the major? This team needs to cut Allu and Friberg and pickup two young replacements to mesh with the younger guys. They could be decent in a year or so.
2017-11-05 15:50
Yea yea, you are brain damaged, I get it. I know you like the idea of cutting team's best player but I'm sure you'll figure out why it's not such a great idea if you think about it for a while.
